Chris Reed, Founder and CEO of Reed’s commented, “When I started this company my goal was to dose up America with ginger, so it is totally fitting that our Reed’s and Virgil’s show up at CVS around the country. Many of our customers purchase Reed’s Ginger Brews for the health benefits of ginger, like improved digestion and to quell bouts of nausea. As the CVS consumer is demanding more healthy and natural beverage choices, Reeds and Virgil’s are positioned to be the anchor of the CVS craft and specialty beverage assortment. We are proud to collaborate with CVS as they innovatively reinvent today’s pharmacies by embracing the benefits of natural products like Reed’s and Virgil’s.”
